SUBMISSIONS DUE MARCH 24th 5:00PM
Kuiken Brothers announces details on an upcoming Classical Moulding & Millwork Design Competition where the winner can win Five Hundred Dollars and have their work showcased on kuikenbrothers.com/mouldingproject. The winner will be announced at the AIA Newark & Suburban Architects New Members Party on April 7th at the KB Concepts Showroom in Succasunna, NJ.
George Washington will be adding a wing to the famous and iconic Mount Vernon estate. He has commissioned you to create a millwork package for a room within this wing, whether it be a formal dining room, a sprawling great room, or a grand entrance. He has requested that you pay particular attention to the moulding, door and window details.
Submissions will be judged on their use of space, scale and proportion, as well as the level of detail provided in the selection of windows, doors and KB Classical Moulding. Keep it simple – participants should focus exclusively on one room (it can be as simple as one wall!).
